|The Dragon Glass range
of glass slumping molds has been designed specifically for both the
artist and the crafter Dragon molds have several unique features:
The raised "skirt"
around the mold. This has the effect of raising the bottom of the
mold off the shelf of the kiln, thus allowing even circulation of
heat all around the mold and glass as it is slumping.
The "skirt" has cut-out "handles" on
each side, to facilitate easy lifting in and out of the kiln, and
also to let the heat circulate beneath the mold.
The "foot ring" or "foot" depressions
in all the molds. This ensures that each piece of glass formed in
a Dragon Glass mold, has a nicely finished base, with an evenly
formed ring, or feet, to give it stability and a professional appearance.
The molds all come with the holes pre-cast in, positioned
to give optimum slumping results. These holes are made in the 'green-ware',
so as not to stress the clay shape after it has been fired.
The molds all have a wide rim at the top, to enable correct
placing of the glass piece. This ensures even forming, and correct
proportions to the finished articles.
The range of Dragon Glass molds is being constantly improved
